Rustic Happy Birthday for my Daughter's 13th

Hello! Today was my youngest daughter's 13th birthday! Naturally, being last minute as usual, I sat down in the morning to put together a card for her! (I hope I'm not the only one who does that!) I always find it hardest to make cards specifically for a person - for some reason I feel like I have to get it just right to fit them - especially when it is one of my kids. I ended up pulling out a new paper pad that I hadn't used and some Reverse Confetti stamps and dies - and couldn't be happier with how it ended up! Fits her to perfection! She is not your typical girly girl - so no pink or glitter. She loves the outdoors, trees, natural colors, and archery - so this is what I put together:

I started off with my pattern paper actually - a new one I hadn't yet broken into to use but loved - American Crafts Creekside. I used Boho Vibes and coordinating Confetti Cuts to stamp and die cut a couple of arrows and colored the feathers with a Copic marker and added some white gel pen accents. I stamped and die cut the sentiment using Circle Wishes and coordinating Confetti Cuts on some of the pattern paper from the pad. I also used more pattern paper to die cut the Sunburst Tag Layer.

I added some white paint splatters to my background pattern paper, then once it dried a bit, layered everything else on it adding foam adhesive behind the circle, and some clear foam adhesive to pop up the arrows. I added a white frame from All Framed Up, some jute twine on the tag, and a wood veneer star from my stash on the center of the arrows. As a final embellishment, I added a few Gold Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh and filled in the center with white Nuvo Drops (which gave me a touch of gold shimmer, but without too much to offend the non-girly birthday girl!).
